McMurdo Presents: Future of Combat Search & Rescue at SAFE Symposium

When it comes to search and rescue (SAR) missions, every minute can mean the difference between life and death. For the men and women coordinating rescue operations, situational awareness is vitally important to SAR helicopter crews. New capabilities are now becoming available to greatly improve distress alerts, communications and crew safety for mission success.

Summary:

Next-generation technology advancements are helping to reduce the probability of signal detection and interception by enemy troops.

Yet, new technologies often prompt innovation of counter-technologies soon after.

When it comes to quickly locating combat personnel in distress – covertly – what does it take to stay one step ahead of the enemy?

Hear from our panel of military and civilian leaders about their real-world concerns for planning and executing these vital missions.
